DVD regions - why do they matter?

Q: DVD regions - why do they matter?

I would appreciate if someone would explain the significance of DVD regions. I rented an old movie from my local library. When I tried to play it on my Windows 7 machine, there was a message that the DVD was purchased in region 1, my computer DVD drive was set for region 2, and I needed to change the region. Since there is a limited number of region changes that can be made, I decided not to make the change and did not watch the movie.
 
Would someone please explain the technical background as to why regions matter? And why did Microsoft decide to limit the number of region changes for Windows 7?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

1.  Just read what Wikipedia has to say about region codes yourself.
 
2.  If you use VLC Media Player it will play any region code DVD without a fuss.

Are you creating these templates inside of a defined web site on your computer or server? The template needs to reside where the created page based on that template expects it to be in relation to the root of the web site.

Hi All

I am currently on my last region change with Intervideo WinDVD prog. Is there a way to change this
 

A:WinDVD Regions

hi jaunboy

you can find dvd genie at :

www.inmatrix.com/genie/

this will give you information and a program that will allow you to free up your win dvd.

you will probably need to change your firmware.

you will get additional information on changing your firmware and be given the link you need at the site.

read the instructions carefully! if you are prepared to do this read the instructions, take your time and let the flashing finish.

it does work, i have done mine.

It is clean.A failure to keep the correct time is usually an indication that the cmos battery is dying or dead and needs to be replaced.

Hello,

I have a laptop that I purchased in the United States. I am over in the UK for a few years and have been watching DVD's on my PC for the past few months. I got a wonderful Christmas gift (Seinfield box set) from the United States. Now when I go to watch it, I get that I must change my region. So I press to do that and I get a warning that states that I cannot undo this even if I reconfigure the operating system!

Does anyone know a way around this? Most of the DVD's that I will be watching will be from this region (in the UK) so I don't want to switch it around and not be able to switch it back!

Are there any programs out there that will let me watch it or keep flip flopping?

Thanks to all.
 

A:HP laptop DVD Changing regions

u can change the region by rightclicking on the dvd drive icon and selecting Hardware--> Properties. then go to DVD Regions tab and change the setting. Use PowerDVD software to watch the video without flip-flopping.

I am currently sending my machine in for repair, 3 different restore disk versions sent by have failed. Thier are several other people reporting the same issue on the web. The problem seems to have started with units manufactured in Sept. 2007. The origional restore disk made by the computer may work but purchased copies and tech support disks appear not to be working. From what I can tell their is a mismatch of the disk to the firmware. The fact that people are solving the problem by changing to an origional version of Vista indicates its defective factory restore disks, HP is sending out the wrong restore disks or bad firmware on the laptops. Has anyone else seen this problem and if so what was the HP solution. I have had HP technicians already make notes and advise thier support engineer of the problem. This error appears to be effecting the 9500 and the 6500 machines.

I presume ?media? should be DVD movie with certain region code you defined in ODD properties.
Australia must be ?region 4?.

I have a problem with an external hard drive with some fairly important bits and pieces on it. First windows wanted to check it for consistancy, it got one percent of the way through and crashed with a message saying something about a bad region. now when i connect the hard drive it recognises it but windows explorerer wont show the files and freezes when i try to view them, eventually telling me that the hard drive is not formatted and would l like to do that now. there is about 100 gig of data on there that i would like access to, would it be better to find a way to transfer it off or is there any possibility of getting the thing working again?
thanks

Some of the best data recovery software out there

http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm

you need to know if the drive was formatted NTFS or FAT

if the hard drive is failing (most likely) this may not get all the data.

It is fully automatic.

ALl you have is to just watch the movie.

If it wont run, and if you change the region now, you might lose the number of the regions in your DVDROM's bios.

Hi,

Title says it all The list country list in phone/modem options is empty on my installation of XP Pro. I've done alot of google searching & came across a Microsoft KB article (which had been removed) but later found out it's contents. It listed the solution as setting the telephony service to manual.

On my machine that was already the case so no luck Tried restarting the service etc with no effect.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this. This installation is only a few weeks old, so it's very frustrating to see problems already.

Thanks
Kad

A:what is matter

I think WINRE_DRV and System_DRV are 2 hidden partitions required on GPT disks that are used with Windows. They were likely placed there during the Windows installation by default.

In that situation, you don't want C to be active.

As far as I know, you can convert a GPT disk to MBR, but I think you have to remove all partitions first.

Not sure about the above as I don't use GPT disks.

Hi i'm clearly new here and was hopping to get some thoughts.I was told that a strong enough magnet would disrupt my wireless cam and was wondering if that was true?
 

A:Help on this matter

Hello and welcome to TSG.
Well im no expert on magnets or magnetism, but as far as i am aware anything to do with magnets (either natural, manufactured or electromagnetic), and anything electrical should always be avoided as much as possible. Even such minor things as "coiling up" excess cables can effectively turn themselves into electromagnets and thus disrupt electrical fields. So i would say yes it is possible. Whether the magnetic field disrupts the actual signal or the cam itself, i cannot say.

Hi and welcome to TSG,

Download this: http://downloads.subratam.org/FINDnFIX.exe
Extract it (it should autoextract to C:\FindnFix when you double click it)

Go to the C:\FindnFix folder and doubleclick on !LOG!.BAT and let it run. It will generate a log.txt file. Copy and paste log.txt back here in your next reply.

Hey! If my computer has DDR2 RAM in it, does it matter what kind of memory is on the gaming video card?? Should it be DDR2 as well, or can it be DDR3? I just wanted to make sure.
 

A:Does this matter?

The memory type on the graphics card is independent of the memory type in RAM. It can be DDR3 even if you have DDR2 RAM.

I have 4X512 dimms of Kingston, PC3200 400MHz, dual channel mode.

Because they are in AMD environment (Athlon 64 3200+, 2GHz, Asus A8V-Deluxe s.939), my timings are just 3-3-3-8. Also its 2T(instead of 1T), 333MHz(instead of 400). They told my that I cannot do anything to change these numbers, because I have 4 sticks in amd platform.

So, I m thinking of buy 2 new kingstons of 1GB each(2X1GB), replacing the existings 2X512. After that I ll have totally 3 GBs of ram (2X512, 2X1024) Of course I ll put them in the right position so that I ll have dual channel mode(1st module:512, 2nd:1024, 3rd:512, 4rth:1024).

The queries are:
Is it a good idea to make such a movement?
Will timings be better? Will I have T1 and 400MHz?
How much improvement shall I see? 20%? 30%? 50%?

Compaq CQ50-103nr Laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium.

You can see the Wireless User Guide here. My understanding is that the wireless light is orange when the wireless adapter is disabled and blue when enabled. If I press the wireless button, it turns blue for about a half second and back to orange.

I have loaded the drivers furnished by Compaq and I have no exclamation points in Device Manager.

My guess is the wireless adapter is kaput; but, before I spend any money, I would like to know what others here might know about this that I might not.

The power button for this laptop is at center top of the keyboard and the wireless button is just a half-inch to the right of it. It has the wireless symbol on it, lit in orange and it finds no network although I do have a working wireless router on which another laptop here is currently working.
 

A:Wireless LAN indicates it's off no matter what

Unfortunately, a non-working wireless adapter and a wireless light which is permanently amber is a widespread fault with HP & Compaq laptops (Google Search brings up loads of forum posts to prove how widespread it is). My grandaughter's packed up on her Compaq last year and it defied all attempts by me to fix it so I bought her a plug-in USB wireless adapter which solved the problem.

In my daughter's case, the built-in wireless adapter wasn't even listed in Device Manager, which means it isn't even being detected, which usually means the device has failed. Your Device Manager is probably not listing it either (hence no errors are shown).

If the laptop is still under warranty, HP will repair it free of charge (or at least that is what I read on the various forums last year).

i think you are going to have to take the side off and check for any loose connections. make sure if theres a video card that its seated properly .
if you have no success, unplug it and pop the battery out for at least 20 minutes to reset the cmos.
you might need to tweak the bios setup options afterwards.

goodluck and post back

i used to have dual boot windows vista and ubuntu and i got rid of ubuntu and the grub boot loader (by using vista recovery cd and using the command bootrec.exe /FixMbr) which i replaced with the vista boot loader from the recovery cd i made but for some reason i dont have BIOS anymore. at all. and when i press f9 to load my recovery partition it gives me the error
PXE E61 media test failure, check cable
PXE M0F exiting pxe ROM

then it loads windows vista and i cannot reformat my computer because of this. i really need to get this done as soon as possible i cannot express how grateful i would be to whoever can help me solve this problem. thankyou.
 

A:URGENT matter.

Vista and the boot-loader have nothing to do with BIOS.

Try a PS/2 keyboard if you are using USB.

You might try resetting CMOS. The machine is trying to boot from the network, possibly because it can't find any OS.

Dear Carrie:

Sorry to tell you, but it seems like you must find a fresh new XP cd in order to reinstall it, as well as your previously installed software (provided you had backed up things before the disaster).

If you at least were able to start XP and some other kind of errors were jumping out, maybe something could be done. But don't guide by my opinion only. Here at the forums are some pretty cool geniuses which could help you better than me.

Sorry for not being of much more help

Describe your issue a bit and do the following.

Download DDS and save it to your desktop from here or here or here.
Disable any script blocker, and then double click dds file to run the tool.
When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:

I know that with a cassette tape, when you go down to the fourth or fifth generation, you can really hear the difference. The sound gets quite muffulled.

But what about CD-Rs?

Can I go down four or five generations and still maintain the same sound quality. I know there are rumours that digital CD-Rs make exact copies, but I thought I'd ask the tech gang to make sure.

Are you using the WMM that comes with Vista or is this the Windows Live Essentials WMM? If not the latter, I think you are eligible for it with Vista and you might try that version. Otherwise there is Pinnacle VideoSpin which is free and you might find does as much as you need without having to pay for a more capable editor.

A:size does matter

gettingthere said:

pardon?

to reduce the size of an image you just need an image editor of some description, the professional app of choice is of course photoshop, which has an extremely useful 'save for web' function that performs this task.

The more widely available (ie cheaper) app is paintshop pro, which you can d/l a demo from jasc.com.

I wouldn't be surprised however, if you existing kodak easyshare had some facility to reduce the (physical) size of an image, is there an option on one of the menus or toolbars to reduce the pixel size and/or the dpi resolution? You may find your photo is currently in several megapixels; the default maximum for the camera that took the photo. If it's just to be used for browsing onscreen, eg on a webpage or similar, then it only needs to be 72pdi which would save a massive amount of file space.

Can I use higher volt ram in my motherboard?

A:Ram Volt Does it matter

You need to check QVL of compatible ram for your motherboard.
1.8v is the motherboard default ram voltage, check in bios to see if you have the option to change the ram voltage.
If you don't have the correct voltage for the ram you will run into booting problems

Hi. I posted a long rambling thing a little while ago because I'm looking at a new laptop. Let me cut out all that stuff and get to one point I'm really curious about -- does 64 bits matter?

I know some people say this is just around the corner, but is it a revolution or just hype?

Obviously I am also curious whether there is a point in waiting to buy a new computer until Intel goes 64 bit -- but the computer I have now is ancient and can't run anything anymore, so I probably don't have that luxury.

Still, I wonder what 64 bits actually means. It's my feeling that 32 bits is doing a pretty decent job and going from 8 --> 16 and 16 --> 32 were the real revolutions. But maybe someone has a different take.

So, my Nvidia card using coolbits overclocking tweak shows me this information on my graphic card

Why is it the OS thinks the AGP is at 2X ???

anyone see same type of thing
what do you make of it
is there some sort of fix for this.

I have the same thing using my
MSI board using GF6600 card
ASUS board using Ti4200 card
 

A:anyone get this or what it means, or any way to fix it for that matter ??

I have only heard of 8x card going down 4x when the AGP slot does not support it. The only thing I think of to suggest is you check you motherboards manual.

Here is the problem I just recently was given a laptop. I was told that it was hooked up to a tv with HDMI but, there was sound on the laptop. I am running Windows 7 Premium HP Pavilion g7-1318dx Notebook PC
Serial Number: 6CF2085XDS Product Number: A7A43UAR . I have no sound with just notebook speakers. I have went to the HP driver download site and tried to download the audio drivers. I receive a warning " The Hardware detected is not supported by this IDT software package. Install will now abort." There are 3 Audio downloads on the Hp website none work. The speaker Icon down by the clock with a red X on it when you do a mouse roll over it says no speakers or headphones are plugged in. I have tried headphones still no sound. I have also tried to the windows trouble shooter and it says it detects no problems. Play back devices is only showing Digital Audio (HDMI) High definition Audio device not plugged in. Recording says there are no audio devises are installed in. I have tried everything any help would be appreciated.
 

A:No sound no matter what

I think that you need an extra lead because HDMI gives picture only. The lead I have has a mini stereo jackplug at one end which goes into the computer's headphones socket and two phono plugs (white and yellow) at the other to plug into the TV's audio input at the back. You should then be able to work out how to set up the sound via Control Panel.

Does it a be able to find a new one anywhere I like the card I have its a strong OC quite high out of the box in my opinion Does it matter if I get a different card for SLI? I can only find used ones and would to prefer to buy new I have been thinking of buying a gt as its basically the same card as far as I can tell Would the performance be a massive amount difference as its not the same model I know this card uses the same chip but every frame extra is going to Does it matter if I get a different card for SLI? help Would I get the same performance if the second card isn t identicial but say a slightly better model like the gtx Also does it matter as much if I change to a different brand I am currently using XFX Thanks nbsp

A:Cant get picture out no matter what... tried everything

Seeing that this is your first post, I will say "welcome to TechSpot"!

Next, I know this has you a bit miffed, I've been down your road of computer frustration at one time or another, but your going to have to give us a little bit more information.

How about a small list of all your components?
What type of case your trying to install of this in?
What is your power supply, and what is it's rating?
What Operating System are you using here?

Maybe a slight "step by step" of what you did prior to uninstalling the I.D.E. DVD drive, through that, to installing the SATA DVD drive. If your suspicions are true, and you think that you missed something minor, doing a small 'step by step" thing sometimes takes care of these sort of thing.

So please get back to us, we are here to help!

Hi I have matter no loud CPU what Fan a custom computer I built and I m having real problems with how loud it had gotten Recently my friend gave me his old processor P GHz with HT and its running CPU Fan loud no matter what on my new mother board ASUS P CPU Fan loud no matter what NSLI and it has been running so loud that it keeps me up I have to open my window to let in degree air to slow the fan down There was one fan already in the case that was sucking air out on the panel side and i recently purchased another one to put in the back near the cpu to blow air in and it made about Zero difference and its putting a good amount of air in My heat sink is just a intel that came with the CPU The fan speeds run as follows at rpm when the CPU is C This is relatively quiet but still can easily tell that the computer is running but this is with the window open haha once i close the window the temp is still at C but it will run at rmp- rmp which is enough to wake me up note these temps are mostly unaffected by cpu usage when i run transcode for my converts an avi file into wmv as fast possible to play through media center If the window is open no sound and the cpu is under rather a heavy load but in the same respect if the window is closed and I m not even using my computer its like a highway in my room The Computer itself isn t in a confined area either it is out in the open in a place where air circulates easily So my though that was maybe i need to mess with the settings in BIOS since i have never really touched them in new computer Any suggestions on what to do whether it is through the BIOS or just how I placed the fans in the case thankyou nbsp

A:CPU Fan loud no matter what

You may be able to change the thresholds for temperature in the bios on whether it kicks the fan into high speed or not.

I'd also suggest taking that fan you put in the back of the case and reverse it so it blows air out, thats traditionally how its done, and makes more sense with the air dynamics inside a case. Fans on the side panels or the front typically blow air into the case, so I'd suggest doing that as well.

You can pull the heatsink off the processor (with the comp shut down of course) and clean it off with 99% Isopropyl alcohol and reapply some thermal paste. Artic Silver seems to be the consensus for doing that, but you can also get away with the thermal paste Radio Shack sells if you must.

A final thing you could do is get an aftermarket heatsink and fan that will run quieter and cool better.

I guess it depends matter? Does really size on who you ask Really though I do have a question about SSD and size It has been asked over and over but I have not seen any threads that really answer my question What size SSD would be the best option for Does size really matter? me I do your normal computer operation but do a lot of serious video work I have many programs Does size really matter? that I need to use for different things that I do Several different things for video large programs office programs that I have for home automation hundreds of gb of music hundreds of pictures tb of video Large programs for pictures I know I won t store any of the music pics or video on the SSD I have read many many many conflicting reports on what to do with your SSD My big question is will I get faster video rendering if the program is on the OS drive Where is the best place to put my programs On another drive or on the same partition as the OS I want what will be best for video work nbsp

A:Does size really matter?

Id use 124GB SSD to load my OS, Video Editing Programs and other main programs that you have on. Keep all the data such as music, pictures, videos on a normal HDD.



My big question is will I get faster video rendering if the program is on the OS drive?Click to expand...

You mean if the program is on the SSD with the OS? Id guess so since it will write the data faster, but I am not expert and on top of that I don't have a SSD. But also a GOOD CPU will play a good roll in that.

Hi i have done a search and not found the answer to my question so i hope someone can help me.

I have installed windows 7 to my main desktop computer and i got the 100 Mb partition, now i have installed win 7 to my laptop the drive was already partitioned on when i look at the drives i have not got the 100 Mb partition, after the search i did on this forum i see the reason i did not get the small partition is because the drive was already partitioned, and this is normal.

But my question is will the instalation work or like this or do i need to remove all the partitions and start again.

Hope someone can advise me.

A:Does it matter about the 100 MB partition

Hi sam49, Im assuming the laptop is booting? If so then you have nothing to worry about

My acer Aspire 5738Z has a web cam called a crystal eye. when I downloaded windows 8 saw that it had a simple to use camera app. No matter how I try I cannot get it to work. I have tried every driver I can find even the ones on the Acer support page. I still get the response "camera not found" In fact this is a true statement because I
can't find where the camera is stored on my system. Any advice welcome. I never tried the camera until I changed to windows 8 so I am not sure if it ever worked.

A:not sure this is a windows 8 matter!!

Hello there I hope I am posting in the right place First off the spec of my laptop AMD Athlon tm II P Dual-Core Processor GHz GB RAM ATI Mobility Radeon HD I run Windows -bit The problem is that I cant seem to run games without getting lag For instance Dragon Age- the only requirement that my laptop might not meet is the processor dual core minimum however I can even top that I can make graphics the best quality or make it the worst it lags almost the same Oblivion that thing requires a Pentium yet I still get lag again the same situation where I can put the best or the worst graphics out? lag is there what, way no matter no Constant on The lag that I am talking about is not terrible for instance the games run at around or more FPS judging by the eye and every once in a while drops to around It is not much but definitely makes the playing experience much less enjoyable I do turn off all of the background programs I even use this little program game booster The hard drive is not crammed to the top I even separated the drive to a few parts for games and for Windows So yea any tips Or am i doomed to play in this ridiculous situation where no matter what Constant lag no matter what, is there no way out? graphic settings you put on you still get lag PS When games are turned on the ventilator blows out quite hot air nbsp

A:Constant lag no matter what, is there no way out?

How big is the hard drive? How big are the partitions? When you partition a hard drive, you waste a lot of space and slow down its data access. Something you never want to do with a laptop

Hi,
its all started when onw day i opend my PC, after 5 min freezes.
In the first place i thought it was somethign wrong with a softaware...so i started to unistall all programs i have one by one to see the performance...nothing happend.
I have even changed RAM..nothing happend.SO finally thought that maybe it was the HDD.

So i bought a new one (Maxtor 40GB) and now when i am trying to install windows 2000 it freezes again in the installation part (you know the blue screen)!!!
What else can be wrong???

thanks for any help.

P4,256RAM,2.4Ghz.
 

A:Pc freezes no matter what i do

sounds like mine, removed everything still happened, BIOS was the problem - it changed some of the settings itself. look at ram spped in bios - mine was set to wrong speed. maybe this will solve your problem, it fixed mine.

Having seen the required specs for half life 2, I've decided to upgrade my current ram and purchase an AMD 2500 processor - my current system is a s follows, AMD 1700, 512 DDR ram (generic), softmodded radeon 9500 128 np, W2000k and a 40 gig HD, not top notch kit but enough to play any current game at optimal configuration.
My question is this, my current 2100, 266mhz generic ddr ram works pretty much adequatly and has given me no cause for complaint but on checking prices, find that higher specc'd ram is'nt as expensive as I'd assumed - would purchasing 333mhz or 400mhz ram offer significant increase in performance or are these specs only relevant to hard core modders?

333Mhz to 400Mhz, not much.

Ran a debug for you, and I get the following:

I think this looks like a driver issue. If you know how to run the driver verifier function, try that. If you've never run it before, be careful... you can get stuck in a BSOD/reboot loop. Here is a tutorial for running driver verifier.

If the driver verifier function makes you too nervous, you could manually search for updated drivers for all of your hardware by going to the manufacturers' websites, one by one, and getting the latest drivers.

I'm at my wits end - it didn't take long!

Fixing up an old Intel 845EPT2 for a neighbor. I did a Reinstall of XP, installed all Drivers straight off the Intel Website, and no matter what, there's no Audio.

"No Device Installed" even though the Soundmax appears in System / Devices.

I have double checked Audio is enabled in the BIOS.

I even threw in an old Soundblaster Live!, turned off Audio in the BIOS, installed Drivers and it did the same thing.

I'm running an SFC / SCANNOW .

The weird thing is that it had Audio before {along with a million viruses, which is why I re-installed}

Any ideas, except a litre of Petrol and a Lighter?
 

A:Can't get Audio no matter what

uninstall all your drivers in device manager, go to your C drive and program files, make sure all files related to the drivers, software is deleted, also, do a add remove any software that may use those same sound drivers that you previously uninstalled. turn off machine, take your card out, if you're using onboard, disable in bios, start up, let windows load, if its a sound card installed in a pci slot a "new hardware" window should pop up, install drivers through that dialog box. If its an onboard sound device just simple restart after windows has started up and recognized no sound devices or drivers installed, go back to bios, enable sound, start up, reinstall drivers and software....I hope this helps as I just had this problem last night and had to figure out how to fix it, GL

Please help! I'm trying to delete some .jpgs from my morpheus shared files folder and it won't let me. I can delete any other file in that folder except for a select few. And I do not have Morpheus running so it isn't being used by any other program. When i try and delete it, it says to be sure the disk is not write protected and not full. It isn't a read only file but it acts like one. I even tried using a special delete program and it won't let me. One thing that is strange is that it says "CF" or "RoM" in the file name. I even tried to rename it but it won't let me do that. WHAT IS GOING ON!! Please help! It's annoying! Thanks in advance!

We knew it would happen sooner or later, but maybe all hope isnt lost.I would think that because mozilla is open source the mozilla foundation will keep releasing fixes in new versions.But this sucks.

A:We knew it was only a matter of time.

As a prediction, I am not sure how good it is, since malware will continue to target the dominant browser, IE. I also note that Mozilla seems much more able and willing to issue patches in a timely manner than has been IE hitherto.

My computer is an hp running windows 7 and has had a few problems in the past with freezing. Recently its been doing fine but the other day windows 10 had almost installed and i was able to cancel it cause I've heard mostly negative feedback. Now ever since that little encounter my computer has been freezing after a few minutes of running. I've tried starting it in all the different safe modes and it still freezes! Is there anyway to fix this or am i better off getting a new computer?Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

The reality is starting to set in with this new build of mine I have an extensive music collection One pet peeve of mine is seeing an mp that Tagg bit, in program. Cannot Mp3's what matter 8.1-64 No looks like this -broken bells-holding on to life My Preference Cannot Tagg Mp3's in 8.1-64 bit, No matter what program. would have been Holding On to Life Bpm - Broken Bells Obviously I'm not ripping from a Cd but I should be able to change the tag I've used MP Collector for the last years I've moved to Media Monkey over the last couple years in XP Now with Windows bit it looks like I can't make any changes to any part of the tagging I tried it in MP Collector After filling all the information I get an error box quot Could Cannot Tagg Mp3's in 8.1-64 bit, No matter what program. not write to file This may be because the file is read-only quot Click oK same screen over and over Only after clicking on the X does the box disappear and of course no changes in the tag information I spent minutes adding I want to add what I want into tags Media Monkey has the same problem I spend the time in properties tagging and nothing ends up happening to the tag on the saved file I tried Mp Tag and again its not changing anything I think its a Windows problem Something won't let me save the changed tag Can anyone help me here I'm sure I won't get anywhere with Microsoft I certainly got no where with Mp Collectorz as you can see by the answer I got from their support team I guess I'm going to have to contact media monkey support I can see where this is going Can anyone help me Maybe its something in Windows that is preventing tagging I have tried doing some searching on google but nothing I've found is helping even in the compatibility administrator modes No One else uses this computer The only thing I can see me doing is doing my editing saving it then putting it back on the XP computer and then do my tag editing and putting back on the this machine All the programs work normal its just the tagging rewrites that I can't get working quot Welcome to support I'm sorry to say but MP Collector will not run under bit Not even in compatibility mode I have no solutions for you to try the software will not run With kind regardz Sytske HermansCollectorz com quot

A:Cannot Tagg Mp3's in 8.1-64 bit, No matter what program.

Ok... I found the answer, no help from the support team at MP3 Collectorz. I actually found the answer by looking at a tagging program called Mp3 tag pro. It is a Windows setting problem. I'm not a technical guy so bear with this answer. I have 5 extra harddrives on my new computer. Each one needed to have permissions to be reset. Heres the steps, the answer to taggin.

Go to This PC
Right click on the Drive
Properties/Security
See Group or user names - All the users in that box.
Under the Group or user names is - To Change persmissions, Click Edit
Click Edit Box to right
This gives you Permissions for Authenticated Users.
I saw that "Allow" Full Control needed to be set on all the users in first box.
After Allow was checked for all the users I click on apply and then OK
This changed to FULL CONTROL Allow with Checks in it.
Double checked the Group or User names to make sure all the users showed Full Control Checked.

Then I did it for every Hard Drive I added to this new computer.

Now tagging works in MP3 Collector and also MediaMonkey. What a Relief. I hope this works for everyone. Mp3 collectorz support was NOTHING. Please don't email them a fix. They don't deserve it. I helped them once in 2006 that solved a problem with HP Collections software that created a major problem with Mp3 collector. Now this!!!! Let them solve their own problems. No More. I like their program but I can't embed Image Album art to the file in their program. That why I also use MediaMonkey which I can.
Funny thing... I'm not by any way a technical person with software. I do have common sense if I can see it somewhere an then think it out. I was looking at MP3tag Pro and they solved the problem in problems with windows 8. mp3Tag Pro and Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1
I modified their 1. answer and found the answer. Thanks to Mp3pro... Maybe I'll have to take a look at their program.

When copying the image from OEM HDD over to the new SSD i struggled getting the same order for the partitions .
Disk 0 is the new SSD (windows 8.1)
Disk 1 is the OEM HDD (which I plan using for storage)

Does the order of the partitions matter ? and if so , what order to use and how to change order ?

A:Does the order of the partitions matter ?

The order of the partitions does not matter. What matters that the drive where your OS is stored boots up first. This you verify in the BIOS. Disk 0 must boot up first.

A:Is Start Menu really matter?

Yep, some people dislike unexpected change, especially when they don't see the immediate value to this change.
However, once you get over the initial knee-jerk reaction, I think that it is easy to get used to the way Windows 8 works.

I have seen regular people using newly bought laptops with Windows 8 as if it was Windows 7 (because they haven't learned about all the new capabilities yet), and they were quite happy with their laptops (they mostly noticed that it boot faster and that the ultrabook are much lighter than regular laptops).

A:homepage keeps changing,no matter what

Download Spybot http://www.sherrylynn.us/privacypolicy.htm

Make sure to follow the instructions for updates prior to running the scan.

Click on "Search For updates" After the search has completed, the available Updates will be listed. Choose which Updates you would like to Download. Click "Download updates." The Updates will self install. The screen will change and the program will come back and be ready to use.

Sometimes the default Download Location will produce an Error. If that happens, look in the right panel. There you will find a small arrow next to the name of the current Download site. Click on it for a list of alternate sites. One of those should be able to retrieve the files you have selected.

Scan, click on fix problems then reboot.

Next:

Download AdAware http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/

Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by clicking

on "Check for updates now", connect.

Click on Start, Use custom scanning options, Customize.

Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"

"Scan within archives"
"Scan active processes"
"Scan registry"
"Deep scan registry"
"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL"
"Scan my host-file"

Click on Tweak,
Select scanning engine and click on "Unload recognized processes during scanning"
Select cleaning engine and click on "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

Then click "proceed" to save your settings.

Click on Next

Run the scan and fix everything.

Post another HJT log for review.

I'm trying to track down why AVG is using all my CPU cycles (read a thread about it here) and I've got it doing a complete scan.

It finds a Trojan "VB.IDT"

Sounds good? Sounds promising? That's what I thought at first.

But the files it finds the Trojan in are TMPEncExpress.zip and TMPEncExpress\Setup.exe

The point is: I use neither. They never get run.

Question: What's the importance of Trojans or Virus's or Adware, Malware, found in files that never get run? Nothing, surely?

p.s.

Unless it DOES get run somehow, by something I don't know about. How can I log every .exe that gets run by my machine?
 

A:Trojan Found - But What's It Matter?

Personaly, I wouldn't want them on my computer, either open or not.

Why don't you delete those files and be done with them?

I've just tried making a backup of files on my laptop
I'm using IMGBurn

I just selected 'write folders/files to disc'
It gave me a warning saying something like 'ISO9660' only supports 8 levels deep in folders - and that I had 15 levels deep

I'm backing up now using UDO - which I know that you use normally ot backup files bigger than 2GB (I think)

What are the different formats?
Does it matter?

Thanks
OM

I have a 1.09 GHz Processor (AMD Athlon XP) Which is really ancient. But does it really matter? I seem to be able to play games that require much more processing at the minimum, such as 2.9 GHz. As long as I have enough RAM, I seem to have no problem running the game. So my question is does processing speed really matter? Yes, I would like a nicer one, but it doesn't seem to really effect my gaming.

They say something about configuration settings.

A:Do desktop .ini files matter?

Some steps for solving this problem. These steps are below: First of all you will double-click "My Computer" on the desktop.Then you will click "Tools" > "Folder Options".After that you will see "Folder Options" multi-tabbed dialog box, choose the "View" tab.Scroll down to "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" and tick or untick the combo box as preferred.Below you will see "Hidden files and folders", ensure the preferred radio button to display or not display these stuffs.And then will press "OK"Finally: Reboot when finished for settings to apply -To actually answer the basic question, they are not needed on the desktop -

I am attaching an example of a pic I just scanned. Vertical lines have been added to show the problem. The middle portion of the scanned pic between the lines is lighter than the outer portions ( I hope it shows up ). I have cleaned all surfaces, reinstalled scanner software and tried many different photo editing software, all to no avail. Scanner in question is a HP Scanjet 5300C running on XP Pro.

Any ideas besides heaving it into a trash bin and using my Canon?

My computer will not boot no matter what I do I don't know what kind of information you need to try and help but I'll give you the information I can think of Let what do. boot matter no computer Cannot I me know if you need anything else I have an Acer Aspire T running Windows It brings me to the screen that says there was a problem with the start up and gives me the option to start it normally or run a start up repair The regular boot obviously doesn't work - it just loops around and Cannot boot computer no matter what I do. restarts and does the same thing The start up repair doesn't work either - it loads files and then brings it to what looks like the default desktop background and doesn't move from there It doesn't work starting it up in any of the safe modes - it just loops around again and brings it back to the start up fail screen again Starting it up at the last known working configuration does the same thing If I go for eRecovery it brings up the screen and says quot Please wait a moment quot and just stays there indefinitely I have the repair discs but when I start it up with those it just brings me to Cannot boot computer no matter what I do. the eRecovery which still doesn't load I'm kind of at the end of my rope here I've resorted to sending it in for repair but I won't be able to do Cannot boot computer no matter what I do. that until I'm home from vacation in a week I was wondering if there was ANYTHING else I could try before then I'm at a complete loss

If you have for example a 128 ram and a 64 ram chip which one goes in DIM1 or DIM 2 slot? does it mater or make a difference?
 

A:Another Ram question, does it matter which DIM slot

most newer motherboards will allow you to install them in any slot. Some older motherboards wanted them installed in certain configurations. Check the motherboard manual and see if it lists configuration options for memory

Generally I try to put the biggest chip in the first dimm slot
